Victory For The County Act.
HONOLULU, May 29. The de
fenders of the Country Act won one
victory in the Supreme Court this
morning. On an objection from H. E.
Cooper, the court refused to allow
argument of the proposition that
the legislature has no right to pass a
county act o er the veto of the
governor. Juge Highton was pro
ceeding to argue tHe matter. When
Cooper objected, saying that it was
a point not brought forward in the
agreed submission, and that no new
matter could be brought up at this
time. After considerable discussion
among the justices, the objection
was sustained, Frear announcing
that the court would decline to hear
argument on the proposition.
The veto proposition was raised in
the Senate by Senator Achi; It is
based upon tho recent amendment
of the Organic Act, designed to
add to the powers of the Hawaiian
legislature to create counties, by
removing the provision that the
governor should appoint all boards
of a public character created by law.
The ameudment provides that the
"governor and' the legislature"
may create couuties, and it was
claimed that this peculiar wording
took away the legislature's power
to override a veto of such an act.
Highton occupied all this morning
with his argument of the various
propositions contained in tha agreed
Exclusion To Exclude.
HONOLULU, May 27. A decis
ion recently delivered by the Sup
reme Court of the United States has
put an end, once and for all, to the
attempts of Chinese seeking to enter
the United States having resort to
writ of habeas corpus in the United
States courts after they have been
turned down by the Department of
Tti3 decision, written by Justice
Holmes, was given in the case of the
United States vs. Ju Toy, claiming to
be a citizen of the United States, ap
pealed from the Circuit Court of Ap
peals of the Ninth Circuit. The de
fendant in the case, Ju Toy, was re
fused landing at San Francisco, by
the Commissioner of Immigration,
aud appealed to the Department at
Washington. According to the de
cision of the court, he exhausted his
legal rights in that appeal. Even If
he were a citizen, he could ouly ask a
determination of the case wherein he
left himself aggrieved by a proper
tribunal, and the Supreme Court
holds that he had that before he sued
outthewriVin the court. In other
words, the ruling of the Department
was final. In summing up the case,
Justice Holmes says:
"In view of the cases which we
have cited it seems no longer open to
discuss the questian propounded as a
new one. Therefore we do not ana
lyze the nature of the right of a per
son presenting himself at the frontier
for admission. In re Ross, 140 U. S.
453, 464. But it is not improper to
add a few words. The petitioner, al
though physically within our bound
aries, is to be regarded as if he had
been stooped at the limit of our juris
diction and kept there while his right
to enter was under debate. If, for
the purpose of argument, we assume
that the Fifth Amendment applies to
him and that to deny entrance to a
citizen Is to deprive him of liberty,
we nevertheless are of opinion that
with regard to him due process of
law does not require a judicial trial.
That is the result of the cases which
we have cited and the almost neces
sary result of the power of Congress
to pass exclusion laws."
Justices Brewer, Peckham and
Day dissented from this opinion, and
Brewer wrote a long dissenting
opinion, but the ruling of the majority
of the court manes the Chinese ex
clusion law, for the first time since
its passenge, a law that really ex
cludes. Thousands ot Chinese, in
times past, have secured entrance
into the United States by suintr out
writs to habeas corpus in the Federal
courts. And there has heretofore
seemed no way to stop this practice.
The decision will have great In
terest to Chinese in Hawaii, too.
There are many Cbiuese here who
are citizens, and who will now know
for the first time that they must all
ways be prepared to establish their
citizenship should they ever go
abroad and wish to return and that
there will be only one tribunal for
Wilder's 8. 6. Co., Absorbed.
HONOLULU, May 29. The con
solidation of the Wilder S. S. Com
pany and Inter-Island Steam Navi
gation Company was finally effected
this morning at a special meeting of
the stockholders of the former con
cern, The action of the stockholders
was unanimous there being 4,050
shares out of the total of 5,000, pre
sent and voting In favor of the mea
According to the terms of the re
solution which was passed, the Wilder
Company decided to sell its property,
good will anil every thiug to the In
ter-Island Steam Navigation for
$750,000 in stock of the Inter-lsland
Company. The action ot the stock
holders was in reality a ratification
of the action of the directors of the
company in entering into the agYee
ment to sell to the other company,
the action being approved by the de
It is expected that the transfer
will occur by July 1 but at least sixty
days will elapse before the company
can go out of existence and its affairs
be settled up. This is a matter that
the Territorial treasurer will have to
pass upon and as soon as he satisfies
himself that the affairs of the old
company have been properly adjust
ed the final absorption of the Wilder
Company will be completed. The
stock of the Inter-Island Steam Na
vigation Company will be increased
to 11,500,000 of which half goes to
the Wilder stockholders and the re
mainder to the other company.
A tiumber of changes in the routing
of the steamers and also in the em
ployment of forces will be made but
these are matters of detail that can
not be settled for some months. J. A,
Kennedy of the Inter-Island will have
charge of the management of the
The Fate of Berber's Band.
HONOLULU, May 27. The ap
propriation for the government band
will expire on June 30, the legislature
haviug failed to make another one,
and there is considerable speculation
as to what will become of the organi
By order of the Governor the band
concerts on Sunday will alternate
hereafter between the ' Capitol
grounds and Makeo island.
The plan which many of the legisla
tors who knocked out the appropria
tion favor is to have Honolulu put up
for the band. The county of Oahu, if
it ever comes into existence, is ex
pected to pay for it. Otherwise a
movement may be started to have
citizens of Honolulu raise the neces
sary money, the Rapid Transit and
local hotels putting up a share in re
turn for music which benefit's them.
After Japanese Strike Inciters.
HONOLULU, May 25. The
Territorial Grand Jury reported to
Jugde De Bolt at 11:50 o'clock yes
terday, returning one indictment,
which was placed on the secret tile.
It is understood that it is against
several Japanese at Alea, charging
them with conspiracy. They pre
vented some of the laborers on the
Honolulu plantation from going to
work by threatening them with
bodily violence. It is thought that
by prosecutions of this kind the Jap
anese strike evil may be stopped to
some extent, at least. It Is under
stood that this case is very similar
to that at Lahaina at present, only
at Aiea the conspiracy was nipped
in the bud before it could do any

The Hostile Fleets.
It is assumed that Admiral Nebo
gatoff's division has joined Vice-Ad-
mirai Kojesi.vensKy s squadron in
the China sea, although no positive
information has been received to
that effect, and Russian naval ex
perts at St. Petersburg are claim
ing that the uniled fleet is cow 25
per cenb superior to Togo's com
mand in ships of the line. That is
probably true, but it may cut no
figure in the result of an engage
ment between the hostile fleets.
There was greater disparity between
the allied fleet of France and Spain
and Nelson's command at Trafalgar
than exists between the tival fleets
In Oriental waters, but the former
was decisively defeated and the tide
of Napoleon's fortunes was turned
by the superior general-ship of the
little admiral ana the fighting
qualities of his officers and crews.
Nelson handled his ships at the
opening of the battle in such a way
that the Franco-Spanish advantage
in ships and guns was at once
abolished and the fight was waged
on more equal terms.
Whatever superiorty the Russian
fleet may possess in ships of the line
over that of the Japanese squadron,
it is counterbalanced by its lack of
homogeneity. A pessimistic member
of the Russian admiralty, who some
time since predicted that Rejest-
vensky was sailing to his destruc
tion, based his opinion on the fact
that the Russian fleet is not homo
geneous. The best and most modern
ships of the line, he maintained, are
handicapped by inferior vessels,
many of them nondescripts, others
out of date, slow and practically
ineffectives, while all were manned
with officer and crews untried in
actual warfare and untrained in the
use of guns. The morale of the Rus
sian crews has doubtless been raised
to a much higher plane since the
fleet left the Baltic, and their skill
in gunnery must have been much
improved by the training and
practice obtained during the stay of
the fleet in Madagascar waters.
But the shock of battle has yet to
be met by them, and that usually
unnerves the green and inexperienc
ed seaman, as it does the raw re
cruit on land when he receives his
baptism of fire.
Lord Charles Bepesford, the idol
of the British navy, confidently
asserts that whenever the hostile
fleets meet the Japanese are sure to
achieve the victory owing to the
superiority of their gunnery.
Moreover, Togo's fleet is homo
geneous. His ships nave seasoned
crews a ad expert gunners, are dlean
bottomed and approximately equal
in speed, and he has, besides, a
large flotilla of swift destroyers
and torpedo boats. But victory is
not always to the strong or the
swift, and the tide of battle on sea
as well as on land, often hangs on
the most unexpected trifles, which
the vigilant commander is quick to
discern and use to his own advan
tage, and what naval dxperts may
regard as the unexpected may
happen in the coming Russian-
Japanese naval engagement.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 18.
The magnitude of the Standard Oil
monopoly will be better understood
when it is known that in the twenty-
three years of its existence it has
paid (496,065,000 in dividends, not
including the one which was declared
a few days ago, on its 1100,000,000
of watered 6tock. Of this enormous
sum, which equals more than one-
fifth of all the metal and paper cur
rency of the Uulted States, 366,
065,000 has been distributed among
the s tock -holders since 1896.
